Madonna Daughter Lourdes Back Brace For Scoliosis

Lourdes Ciccone Leon, the 12-year-old daughter of pop queen Madonna, has been ordered to wear a back brace to help correct a spinal problem.

Lourdes was photographed earlier this month wearing SpineCor body brace around her waist.

Spinal expert Dr. Ron Marinaro, of The Scoliosis Center of Los Angeles, explains that the discreet device is designed for patients diagnosed with idiopathic scoliosis, a common spine curvature that affects more than 3 million youngsters.

Dr. Marinaro tells Star, “She’ll probably only have to wear if for about a year or two.”

Lourdes — who was also fitted with dental braces earlier this summer — will still be able to dance and engage in other physical activity as she’s being treated.

(Glad to hear Mini Madge is going to be okay.)
